Who are we?
We are two expats that moved to Berlin in 2015 - one of us is a masters student
and the other is a Software Developer in Berlin's large tech scene. We both
contribute to Fresh in Berlin on the side to help other expats like us that are
new to Berlin hit the ground running!
Why did we start this blog?
We have both been through the process (some would call it pain :P) of moving to
Germany and Berlin, so we'd like to share with you a lot of knowledge that we
have acquired over the last two years with regard to German bureaucracy and
other processes. We'd also like to share some recommendations that we have on
different neighborhoods and places to visit. We will keep adding to Fresh in Berlin
regularly, and we will work to ensure that it is always kept up-to-date when
Who is this blog aimed at?
The Fresh in Berlin blog is aimed at newcomers to Berlin. Whether you have come here to study
or to work, we are here to help! We have been through the process of getting
residence permits, jobs, registering with the city, finding flats, moving and
many other things, so we will be writing articles on how we did this, what
was worth doing and what to avoid!
So, take a look at our blog and we wish you the best of luck in your new journey!
